MADRID - RESTAURANTE GOFIO

GOFIO One Michelin Star


Gofio is a superb homage to the cuisine of the Canary Islands and was awarded a Michelin Star in November 2019. This contemporary restaurant recreates the flavours of the Canary Islands archipelago from a modern viewpoint.

Chef Safe Cruz comes from a family of farmers from El Tablero, Tenerife. The menus are formed day to day, based on traditional Canarian cuisine and given a modern creative twist.

The are two tasting menus,

Half menu, Gofio €65

Full menu, Maximum Canariety €95

These menus provide an incredible journey of culinary discovery of the Canary Islands.

We chose the Gofio menu, and started with,


Sopa de cangrejos y burgados (crab and burgados (a Canarian mollusc) soup.

10 gramos de caviar (extra €25).

Trucha de conejo con mojo de monte (rabbit empanadillas (similar to a pasty) with mountain mojo sauce).

Bocadillo de pata asada co queso (roast ham leg sandwich with vegetables and cheese).

Tomates aliñados con anguila y helado tomillo limón

(tomatoes dressed with eel and lemon thyme ice cream).

Salmonete de roca soasado con cazuela de sus cabezas y cebollino

(seared red mullet with a casserole of their heads, with chives).

Bocadillo de vendimia atún, cebolla, tomate y chorizo Joselito

(Vintage sandwich with tuna, onion, tomato and Joselito chorizo).

Croqueta de pollo con todo (chicken croquette with a layer of pork jelly).

Sorbette de guayaba su dulce y pomelo (guava and sweet grapefruit sorbet)

Tarte de queso majorero al pimentón (majorero cheesecake with paprika).

This is the Canarian cheese used to make the cheesecake.

All the wines are from the Canary Islands and we had the following,

Red - El Lance 2017 - Suertes del Marquis La Orotava - Tenerife

Sweet - Ignios Blanco Dulce - Canarias
